"(Germ.) Berlin. Pupil of the Berlin Academy, of Von Kleber, Heinrich Hess and Cornelius. President of the Academy of Berlin. Member of the Academy of Vienna and of the Royal Society of Letters and Fine Arts of Belgium. Officer of the Order of Leopold. Medals at Vienna, Berlin and Munich, and many other honors and decorations. Italian mother at prayer. 28 x 42. The gentle earnestness of the mother, as she invokes the madonna or saint, in front of whose shrine she kneels, and the coy timidity of the child, are exquisitely rendered. It is a good example of the artist at his best."
